Wellness Wednesday...Late

Elephants @ Australia Zoo 3
While wrinkles on an elephant are lovely, premature aging isn't - source
Here I go again; another late blog post.  Better late than never.

Late last month Huffington Post had an article/sideshow about foods that age you so I saved it to share on Wellness Wednesday.  You can find the slideshow here.  I've also made a list of the 11 foods from the article:

  1. Sugar - affects the collagen in the skin
  2. Trans Fat - clogged arteries
  3. Salt - dehydrates and tires you
  4. Coffee - also dehydrates
  5. Candy - causes inflammation
  6. Artificial Sweeteners - associated with headaches, joint pain; may cause cravings for sweets
  7. Alcohol - dehydrates
  8. Energy Drinks - damage teeth enamel
  9. Carbohydrates - too many can affect collagen
  10. Fried Food - also affects collagen
  11. Soda - dehydrates

Although the article focused on the cosmetic side effects of these foods, the health-related problems are more important.  Notice that most of these foods are processed and/or artificial foods.  As far as avoiding carbohydrates, don't be mislead into thinking you have to adopt a low carb diet.  It is the overprocessed, refined ones that you should avoid.  Healthy, natural carbohydrates found in whole foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are good for you.

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both educative and interesting,
and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
The problem is something not enough folks are speaking
intelligently about. Now i'm very happy I came across this in my search for something relating to this.

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her
ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off
topic but I had to tell someone!
